Get rid of that big bunch of keys... Get a ABS one key home!


Thumbturn Euro Cylinder:

A thumbturn euro cylinder provides a simple method of opening and closing the door from the inside without a key. This type of lock is used often on new builds and flats to allow for a quick and safe exit in the event of a fire.

The ABS thumbturn has added security built into the cam which means it cannot be bypassed in the same way as a standard thumbturn.

The new Quantum format thumbturn also features a new user friendly shaped turn and is compatible with auto latch locking door bolts.

Double Euro Cylinder:

This type of cylinder is used in the vast majority of UPVC and Composite door locking systems and may also be used in timber doors that have a Euro type sash lock. The ABS lock has a unique patented snap secure system that will effectively block access into the inner door bolt if it has been subjected to a "lock snapping" attack.

Single (or half) Euro Cylinder:

This type of lock is used in the majority of garage door locks. Again, the ABS half cylinder has the same built in snap secure technology which ensures that it cannot be bypassed in a lock snapping attack. 

With ABS you can get your garage door on the same key as your from door!

And because the ABS Rim cylinder uses the same key system you have the added benefit of keying your night latch doors to use the same key as your euro cylinder doors!
